The Bechdel, Russo, and Race Test: Hannibal, “…And the Woman Clothed with the Sun” – Season 3, Episode 9

On Hannibal, “…And the Woman Clothed with the Sun,” Will began his search for the Tooth Fairy, and in order to get his head back in the game, Will visited Hannibal.

The Bechdel, Russo, and Race Test

“…And the Woman Clothed with the Sun” did not pass the Bechdel, Russo or race test. The episode did not pass any of these tests because while there were a couple of named women, non-White characters and a LGBTI character in the episode, named women never talked to each other, non-White characters never talked to each other and the one LGBTI character in the episode, Alana, was not important to the plot of the episode and could have easily have been taken out of the episode without causing much of a change to occur.
